Ok, Need all you great Lumberjocks to guide me with all that great knowledge you have accumulated.
I have a Shop Vac with the dust deputy on a cart thus far, Reference Project;
My problem is like alot of us fellow Lumberjocks, space. I love this set up and it works well, but it gets in the way and I get tired of moving it around and tripping over it.
My thoughts are to get a DC system and plumb it in the shop. When I’m working in the shop, I will move the DC outside the door of my shop. I will connect it with the hose to the plumbing and use a remote control to turn it on and off. This will free up floor space and lower the noise in the shop & make my shop cleaner as well.
I have read a bunch of comments about the 2 hp Harbor Freight DC and some of the others DC’s. In the last few yrs., I have tried not to go for the deals as much as looking for higher quality tools at a fair price. I hate replacing them later when I realize there not working out as well as I hoped. Realizing I should have spent the money on a higher quality tool in the first place.
I have my eye on the 1 1/2 Hp from Penn State Industries. I was wondering if anyone other than the 2 reviews I found on here have any input.
Seem to be a solid performer and the cfm’s @ 1250 seem to be inline with others I have read about.
Any help would be much appreciated fellow LJ’s
